How to edit movie file

Hi,

Is anyone know how to edit the movie file, like cut unnecessary movement?

My .mov file took about 2-3 minutes to load on my pc, is there any way to compress, convert to different version or do something to make the .mov file load faster?

And when the movie file on website, how come when I right click on the window, it does not bring up menu, does anyone know if there should be a menu for Quicktime objects?

Thanks

It would help if you've used a video editing package before.

About.com have an article on editing the mov format [desktopvideo.about.com]

You could use a package like Media Studio [poweroid-video-editing.co.uk]

These will allow you to open the movie in an editing timeline and cut out sections that you don't want. There are other ways a video editing package can reduce the size of the clip for you.

Hi Macro,

Thanks for your help. I checked these links, it's not free trial, I want to try it out first. So, to make it short, I need another tool to make the .mov file smaller and edit uncessary movement?

Thanks.

Almost all the major programs are available for free trial downloads

adobe.com/products/tryadobe/main.jsp
ulead.com/vs/trial.htm

Or Google [google.co.uk]

Alternatively, you could contact someone who does video editing for a living to do it for you. That would save you a lot of time :)

"Cutting unnecessary movement" sounds like a relatively simple task but it may take you several hours of downloading a program, getting familiar with it, and still missing some tricks on optimising file size.

Oh, and you can actually download media studio for a free trial

newbie04...

You asked a similar question in your initial thread [webmasterworld.com] at this board...

Do you know how to convert the .mov to .swf?

I answered that question for you as well as your question concerning not being able to see the player controls in the pop-up window that displays the Quicktime movie. So please go check your initial thread [webmasterworld.com]. I'm certain that this thread is concerning the same issue as the original. Perhaps you should have continued discussion there instead?
